Hey /p/ I used to work for small no name camera repair shop run and owned by a depressed alcoholic divorcee (also the head technician).

All Sony camera repairs (including video cameras) in my city (a major city) came to us, I was hired with no qualifications and no experience whatsoever.

How did I get the job you ask?

>Selling a lens
>Need to get the front element cleaned
>Go in and ask if they can give it a quick clean
>alright.jpg (alcohol breath over 9000)
>gives me lens back
>hey, can I have a job lol?
>yeah ok, let me show you around

Started working the next week, pulling sonys apart and fucking most of them up (I literally had no experience so what do you expect), putting things back together incorrectly, throwing screws in the bin when I didn't know where they went, breaking parts (flex cables) by accident and then just charging the customer. etcetera

Not only that, the head technician was so drunk and raged up everyday I saw him throw people sonys cameras at walls and then frantically try and put them back together, repairs took weeks and weeks if not months because no one knew what the fuck they were doing.

The End

>ask me anything

I haven't worked there for over a year now, people's Sony cameras are still being fixed this way in my city kek

Are vintage lenses worth it if you set aside the nostalgia/collecting aspect of using them?

At first I was enthusiastic about them, but the more I read, the more the whole thing felt like a massive headache. There are issues like radioactive coatings (not a big concern, but not something to be completely dismissed either), glass coloring that has to be removed with UV light, potential mechanical failures due to old lubricants, "bad" and "good" copies of the same model floating around, esoteric differences between sub-models from different batches to be aware of, countless adaptors to choose from (some of them faulty), and then there's the whole business of eBay hunting and dealing with potentially untrustworthy sellers or hidden flaws.

I realized that most of the people frequenting "legacy glass" forums treat buying, fixing and comparing different old lenses as a hobby unto itself, whereas I would be happy to just buy myself a "good enough" 35mm and 50/58mm and be done with it.

I'm perfectly happy with manual focusing, by the way. My two main lenses at the moment are Samyang/Rokinon 12mm and 21mm for APS-C mirrorless and I wouldn't exchange them for their AF equivalents. I'm aware, though, that at narrower distances both AF and image stabilization might come in handy - so maybe that's yet another reason to focus on something more modern?
